The Deal

The Program

On February 25, conductor Louis Langrée, the music director of New York’s Mostly Mozart Festival, steps in for his much-anticipated debut with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra. JUNO Award–winning pianist Marc-André Hamelin also takes the stage for a performance of a Mendelssohn piano concerto.

  • Beethoven—Leonore Overture No. 2: Beethoven struggled to produce a satisfactory overture for his first and only opera, eventually producing four such pieces. This second version begins much as the opera does, with a mournful, hopeless air, and ends with an exultation of the title character’s triumph over a corrupt nobleman and rescue of her husband.
  • Mendelssohn—Piano Concerto No. 1: A quick-fingered, youthful vigor bookends the normally quite conservative composer’s first piano concerto, but it’s the serene middle section that proves that, even as a young man, he had more strengths than pure virtuosity.
  • Schumann—Symphony No. 4: Though last by number, Schumann’s fourth symphony was actually composed right after his first—he just took 12 years to revise its orchestration. The result is a formally daring work in which four starkly different movements flow effortlessly into each other without breaks.
